-First and foremost, I feel being a member of an educational institution demands that the students are made our number one priority. Students should feel safe, inspired and be the focus of our work. Their success as a student is reflection of our work as teachers.
– I believe in setting goals. Young adults should surround themselves with people who believe in them and help them reach those goals. I aim to be one of those people. I believe that success is always attainable and that the definition of success varies from person to person. Giving 100% is the goal.
-I passionately believe inspiration is contagious and that lessons can be and should be learned from the most difficult of circumstances. Consequently, growth is achieved and inspiration spread.
-I do not believe in one size fits all. This is particularly true with students. Each person, each student is unique and should be treated as such.
-I am inspired by motivated people working together to reach a common goal. Selfless service is a key in the education system; each member of the team needs to make the best of the resources they have available for the students
-I believe that a teacher should lead by example. They should make informed decisions based on solid information, be consistent and fair to all involved. Teachers never expect more than they are willing to give. Praise in public, counsel in private.
-Perhaps most important, I believe everyone makes mistakes, forgets an assignment, or speaks out of line on occasions. Because of this, we should be careful with our words, criticism and judgment. Quick to praise, slow to judge and stay mindful we are all human.
